Honda's ASIMO robot adds conductor to it's resume next month, when it conducts the Detroit Symphony Orchestra with renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Honda hopes ASIMO's appearance will draw attention to the DSO's youth music programs, as well as Honda's $1 million gift to create The Power of Dreams Music Education Fund.
Honda is also hoping that when Asimo steps up to the podium, it won't fall on it's cyber-kiester, as it did in this unfortunate demonstration!
